Strahan impresses again, having gathered a fine collection of stories first published in 2016. You can see somewhat detailed thoughts on most of the individual stories in previous posts of mine, and I will finish that series in the first part of this post: Foxfire, Foxfire, by Yoon Ha Lee. 4 stars...

Harry the Mouse is asking his friends to borrow things then invites them to his home later in the week. It is scary walking in the dark to borrow the items. But it all turns out alright. I enjoyed this story. It is good for the little ones with repetition and good manners. It is not too scary ...

Interesting and a story I found captivating, I really wanted to know what was going to happen with Shahar, Sieh and Dekarta and what their friendship would do with the world. They were three interesting people and what happened to Sieh was intriguing, his having to deal with issues he never had to b...

The concluding volume in a trilogy whose first 2 entries both won a Hugo, this will be on my ballot next year. This series is great. This conclusion is brilliant and has pay off for so many world building hooks I'm surprised it isn't 1000 pages long. My favorite minor reveal is the origin of Safe...

One of the things I like to do with series, though it definitely has an impact on how much I get to read overall, is re-read the previous volumes before I dive into the new one - as a result, I've spent the past couple of weeks reading all 3 of the Broken Earth books (The Fifth Season and The Obelis...

I don't think I can fully review this book without spoiling it, and that is just something I do not want to do. I went into this book knowing nothing about it other than it won the Hugo, was nominated for numerous other awards (Nebula, Locus, Kitschies, Goodreads), and would probably be well written...

I think the best compliment that can go to this book is that it didn't let my expectations down. All the complications and ambiguities and history in the first two books are extended and do some extent explained, and I was left feeling content in the ending. I thought it would break my heart, but in...

Ich habe mir in den Kopf gesetzt, häufiger weibliche, erwachsene High Fantasy zu lesen. Mir ist aufgefallen, dass Frauen dieses Genres in meinem Regal völlig unterrepräsentiert sind. Gefühlt stammen alle großen HF-Romane von Männern: „Der Herr der Ringe“, „A Song of Ice and Fire“, „Das Spiel der Göt...

2016 may not have been a barrel of laughs, but it did produce some quality scifi and fantasy. As always, I found Jonathan Strahan's collection to be vivid, varied, and thought-provoking. In his introduction, Strahan comments on the absence of general themes, other than a preponderance of climate-cha...
